Throughout the span of WWI to the 1960s, Ursula is unaware of dying multiple deaths and being reborn time and again. She does, however, have a “sixth sense” -- a sense of déjà vu appears whenever the most stressful or horrific episodes in her life are to occur. Because of this “sixth sense,” Ursula is able to change her own history and make her future futures (?) a little bit more content and livable. The writing is just beautiful and the author’s attention to detail makes for very realistic and vivid characters.

This is a difficult book to review. It is extremely well written but can be quite confusing. The author undertook a very difficult task in keeping the story flowing. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.
